Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to release a series of language learning books: Short Stories for Beginners, in six languages.
Together with the wonderful Teach Yourself, we worked long and hard to create beautiful new editions of the books that I originally released a few years ago.
I’m delighted with the books.
But the other day, I also achieved a long-standing dream of walking into a bookshop and seeing my own books on the shelves!
What could be better?
Well, turns out there is something.
To promote the book launch, I reached out to polyglot friends and colleagues from around the internet to see if they would lend a hand.
Together, we organised a Festival of Reading, where every day for over a month, these guys and girls gave short readings from the books, in multiple languages.
I was so happy to have everyone’s support with this festival, I decided to put together this commemorative post, so you can see all the readings in one place!

And if you own one of the books, and would like to post a picture on social media, please use hashtag #AStoryADay so I can find you!
Anyway, bring on the festival…
